Project Morpheus is now called PlayStation VR

Sony has unveiled a rebrand for its in-development virtual reality system.

Having until now been known as Project Morpheus, the tech will from now on simply go by the name PlayStation VR.

The name ‘PlayStation VR’ not only directly expresses an entirely new experience from PlayStation that allows players to feel as if they are physically inside the virtual world of a game, but it also reflects our hopes that we want our users to feel a sense of familiarity as they enjoy this amazing experience,” the VP of Sony’s Software Design Division Masayasu Ito said.

We will continue to refine the hardware from various aspects, while working alongside third party developers and publishers and SCE Worldwide Studios, in order to bring content that deliver exciting experiences only made possible with VR.”

Sony hasn’t offered any update over its currently fairly vague ‘first half of 2016′ release date for its VR headset, saying only that there will be more news in the coming months”.

Here’s a new PlayStation VR trailer:
